You can read the TPC newsgroups on the web, you can read them using a newsreader such as Outlook Express or Thunderbird (to save the contents of newsgroups in your computer's mailbox) when you have time, or to have messages automatically sent to your mailbox you can subscribe to mailing lists that you want to read. If you subscribe to tpc.list, for example, you will get a reminder before each TPC meeting.
If you prefer to read the TPC mailing lists and newsgroups on the web, you can post questions or answers to them as follows: the groups and lists all have names like "tpc (period) name"; replace the period with a hyphen and add "( at mark ) tokyopc.org" to the end, to get the email address to post to. The instructions are the same as for posting to mailing lists (for example, tpc.help) but you do not need to be subscribed to a mailing list to post to it. Except for a few member-only groups, you do not need to be a TPC member to participate, although we hope that you'll support us by joining.
As you can see, TPC is not exclusively for computer geeks; we welcome newcomers and our mailing lists and newsgroups are not restricted to computing. This reflects the fact that while meetings tend to be mainly about computing execs (past and present) and key members have interests ranging from big bikes and sailing to ham radio. (Heck, some of us even own Macs!) We support the community, and welcome your contribution to the community.
Keep up with TPC
